The airborne ragweed pollen spectrum was investigated in the air of Ankara, Turkey for a period of ten years (1990-1999) using a Burkard seven-day volumetric recording trap. In our study period, long distance transported Ambrosia pollen has been registered. Daily pollen levels varied from low to high in Burge's system. In last three years, the pollen concentration of Ambrosia showed a clear increasing tendency. Our results prove that ragweed pollen may be an important threat for ragweed sensitive patients in Ankara city in near future.
